Are required to take a commercial vehicle test every year to renew their commercial vehicle certificate of roadworthiness. Vehicles that fail must have failure items repaired before they can be re-tested, many of these repairs can be carried out at Galway Truck Centre.


There are 4 main reasons your vehicle needs an annual CVR test:



1. You can't get your vehicle taxed without it.

Only when you pass your CVR test, will you get your Certificate of Road Worthiness (CRW)? And you can't renew your tax without your CRW. You need to include your CRW in your motor tax application.


2. It makes more roadworthy vehicles

The CVR test makes sure that, every year, all goods vehicles on the road have been thoroughly and fairly tested. The test catches vehicle failure points and re-tests vehicles on those points, so they return to the road as safer and more roadworthy vehicles.


3. It saves time

Yearly tests and well-maintained vehicles mean fewer breakdowns. The CVRT programme improves the overall efficiency for goods vehicle testing.


4. Its the law.

The legislation states that all commercial vehicles must be tested when they are over one years old and annually after that. So having your vehicle tested means avoidance of penalty points and fines.
